Wed, March 29, 2017, 6:30 PM – 9:30 PM EDT
The SKYWARN® Convection course provides a more in depth training of severe weather hazards and the role of spotters during these events. The course is intended for all levels of expertise, though having attended a Basic class (with any NWS office) is mandatory to attend. We also require you to be at least 14 years of age. Topics to be covered include:
- Severe weather hazards in the Mid-Atlantic
- Ingredients and forecasting for severe weather
- Severe weather statistics
- Severe weather preparation and safety
- NWS severe weather products
- The role of a SKYWARN® spotter in severe weather
This SKYWARN® Spotter Class is offered free of charge from the combined efforts of your local National Weather Service Forecast Office and Morgan County Emergency Services. A National Weather Service meteorologist will teach the class.
Registration is required to attend the class!
